Bust of a Nude Woman


Black chalk and stumping

Height: 12.2 cm (4 13/16 in.); Diameter: 10 cm (3 15/16 in.)

Bequest of Muriel Butkin 2017.214


Lemoine was famous for his black chalk portraits like this example of a bust of a nude girl. Given the sitter’s individualized features, this image could represent a specific portrait; however, her identity is now lost to modern viewers. Below the portrait on the blue oval mount, the artist signed and dated the work to indicate his authorship.
